A new trailer for Star Trek Into Darkness has gone online. Unlike the previous teaser, this one is far more melancholy as we hear Pike (Bruce Greenwood) tells Kirk, “There’s greatness in you, but not an ounce of humility. But there’s going to come a moment when you’re wrong about that. And you’re going to get yourself, and everyone under your command, killed.” From there, we see the epic action director J.J. Abrams is going to unleash. Details on the story are still scarce, but a teaser trailers never give those away. They’re meant to entice, and this new trailer is even better than the first one.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer. The film also stars Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Benedict Cumberbatch, Karl Urban, Anton Yelchin, Zoe Saldana, John Cho, Simon Pegg, Alice Eve, Peter Weller, and Noel Clarke. Star Trek Into Darkness opens in 3D on May 17, 2013. [Update: Hidden in the trailer is the key to launch the film’s viral campaign. More after the jump.]
